Part 489r – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Updated Robertson Descendant Chart

09 April 2011

Good Afternoon,

With the most recent discovery of Grandfather Frederick Henry Robertson’s two elder siblings, John Merrifield and Alexander George, I have updated and included them in the Robertson Descendant Chart.

The two new additions are highlighted in red.

Sadly both, John Merrifield and Alexander George, according to the respective 1883 and 1885 General Register Death Indexes passed away in infancy. The following are the images, as downloaded from and my transcriptions.

ROB] DEATHS registered in January, February, and March 1883. 294
ROBERTSON, John Mirrifield.
Age. – 1
District. – Shoreditch
Vol. – 1 c.
Page. – 69

ROB] DEATHS registered in July, August, and September 1885. 230
ROBERTSON, Alexander George.
Age. – 0
District. – Shoreditch
Vol. – 1 c.
Page. – 58

Please note have granduncle John Merrifield Robertson’s middle name is entered on the Index – “Mirrifield”. I have transcribed it as such; it is what I see and I will not change my transcription. I will note the difference in spelling as well as cite my source. The recording on the Birth Index and the Parish of Holy Trinity Baptism Register, (see Part 487r), both register the middle name as “Merrifield”. Lesson learned – One document may not be enough…
